SURFING WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Surfing Australia’s west coast is a must-do for pros and beginners alike – it’s here you’ll catch some of the most consistent, top quality reef breaks, beach breaks and point breaks on Earth.


A world-class surfing capital


Ranked alongside Hawaii, Margaret River surf is internationally renowned a ‘big wave’ hot spot.

Take your pick from more than 40 powerful reef breaks and fun beach breaks, including the 10-foot wave powerhouse of Yallingup, North Point in Gracetown, The Box, Smiths Beach and the Three Bears.

Or join the world’s elite at Surfer's Point, home of the annual Margaret River Pro.


Surfing Perth


For Perth’s gnarliest waves head to Trigg, where shifting sand banks over rocky ledges create powerful surf.

You'll also find ample wave action at iconic Cottesloe Beach, buzzing Scarborough Beach and the famous Strickland Bay on Rottnest Island.


Best-kept secrets


Going that extra mile to seek out the local surfing secrets will reward you with experiences of a lifetime.

​Head for the reef breaks of Esperance, the left-hand ledge at Gnaraloo, The Bluff in Geraldton, Yardie Creek near Exmouth, or try Jake's Point in Kalbarri for some of Australia's most powerful left-footers.
